Welcome to the WCISD Counseling Homepage!
The mission of the Wolfe City Counseling Department is to provide a comprehensive counseling program that encourages students to reach their full potentials focusing on: social/emotional adjustment, college and career readiness, and academic development. Wolfe City counselors work closely with administrators, teachers, and parents, to support every child both inside and outside the classroom. Our focus is on character development, social skills, and self-esteem. Our goal is that every student feels a sense of self-worth and develops the skills necessary to lead happy and productive lives!
What is a School Counselor?
A school counselor is a certified, trained, and caring professional that assists students in acquiring the skills they need to develop their social, emotional, career, and educational goals. School counselors hold a professional certificate in counseling issued by the Texas Education Agency. School counselors hold a master's degree in counseling.
What Services Can a School Counselor Provide?
We provide many services at school working with students, parents, and teachers. All counseling relationships are established and operated under a professional code of conduct. Although counselors protect the privacy rights of children and families when possible, WCISD counselors are required by law to report any form of child abuse or neglect.
